Who ARE you people???
That was kind of a silly title, I know... (I was dramatically shaking my fists up to the sky...see above...and yelling this question to the Internet Gods)....but I was just checking my podcast logs recently...and I was shocked!
The last podcast, Cold Balls, had almost 1,000 downloads from the release untill now (less than a month)!!!
And, this one, I Heart Knitting Group has gotten almost 800 downloads in the past 5 days!!!
Again, I shake my fists and scream...."Who ARE you people????" (and why aren't you commenting on my blog? LOL!)
Crazy, wacky, "what-the-hell-are-you-all-listening-to-me-for?" feelings......but, of course, don't stop (something I say pretty often....LOL....TMI...)! Because I am EXTREMELY grateful to anyone who listens...even if you can't stand the sound of my voice or my chit chat, at least you TRIED, right?
But, besides that wonderful, shocking, incredible news.....
Here is a gratuitous photo of Ben and the cute Duplo "street scene" we made today with his Heros set....The Hulk, Mr. America, Wolverine and 2 (yes, two) Spidermen. Aren't we talented in the House household?
And here is a pic of my second and final Spin to Knit package I got from Naomi of An Ent Knits. I was again sad that this second package was also late and hoping for some small, extra goody in the package, but I was grateful to get such well made yarn. Nice colors and pretty card, too. Not sure what I'll do with these mini-skeins, but I'm sure I'll figure something out. Thanks, Naomi.
I'm finally working more on my Tote'M bag from Knitter's Magazine (keep forgetting which issue). Jackie is going to start hers and that gave me the perfect excuse to finish mine. I'm trying not to let the 408 rows of garter stitch intimidate me or the 3 sections of 2 FOOT i-cord, but...hey, I'm only human. Right? (or maybe not.....mwaahhaaahaaa!)
Any other news???? Hmmmmm....well, last night was the last Argyle sock class and I'm very sad it's over. Jay Allen of The Yarn Basket was the best teacher I've ever had (funny, relaxed, patient, and inspiring) and I hope she'll do another class. I was trying to convince her to do a Norwegian sweater class with steeks (almost wrote "steaks" there) and colorwork....we'll have to wait and see, though. I love that store...tiny as heck, but really warm and wonderful. Jackie had to rip some new Step sock yarn away from me as we were leaving....(it was pink and purple STRIPING!!!!!) I REALLY don't need MORE sock yarn...do I?
Have a great night!
